A reporter interviewed P. W. Crowe, the gasoline lamp contractor here, who is connected with the infernal machine matter. Peoria has always been at the head of the Fenian agitation hers, and Crowe is one of the most desperate agitators. He is a man of small stature, dark, in tellectual countenance, and talked com posedly as on ordinary topics. Crowe produced a letter from Geo. Holgate, dated Philadelphia, August 31st 1880, setting forth that Mr. Holgate owned the McClintock torpedo boat, which did such terrible execution during the re bellion, and that he had been conducting experiments with it under water which caused .McClintock to lose his life. That he had refused a proposition from Spain for the boat, lie claimed the boat would blow up any vessel in the British licet, and could blockade any post regardless of all the men-of-war in the world. It would cost about $20, 000 to build it, and he, would place it at the Crowns disposal, lie claimed tho boat would do inore good for Ireland, and fetch the British to terms quicker than half amillion men. Crowe said, shortly after the Executive Com mittee of United Irishmen met in New York, Judge Brenncn, of Iowa, Capt. G. Spirman, of New York, James ite re ii, of Providence, Thomas II. Dwyer, of Chicago, O' Donovan Kossaand liim self were present, that they discussed Holgate' s proposition 'and the scheme of devastating England's shore, but on Crowes repre sentation they decided it would be too expensive and that they could do bet ter work by depositing torpedoes in British ships which could bo done for twenty-five dollars a piece which would bring England to 'terms by making it dangerous for people to go aboard Brit ish vessels. They desired to take this course some time later and the United Irishmen and Fenians joined hands in order to execute these plans. Thev were six thousand strong in the United States and Canada. There were branch es in Quebec, Montreal, Toronto and nearly every important city in the United States. These infernal ma chines are being made in every city where there is a branch of the order and will continue to be made. They are working for the good of the old sod and t hey were no more liable than were the makers of revolvers and cannons. Dynamite was no more vicious than powder and with these weapons they could drive from them their enemy, de stroy her trade and make prolitable bus iness impossible. Some people would have to die. There would bo live or six then boycotting, but man was al ways cruel' and that war was easiest which went the straightcst to the mark and killed the most in the shortest time and compelled nations to make peace. CROWE ARKKSTE. Washington, August 2. Crowe of Peoria has been arrest (id. Tho warrant was sworn out by tho British Vice-Consul at New York which was sent to the United Stales aut horities of Illinois. Attorney-General MacVcagh says tho matter of infernal machines has not been brought oflicially to his notice but if it is he Villlind a law for the sup pression of such practices and would not deal leniently with offenders, mak ers and users. He thinks Harlniann, the Nihilist, might be turned over to Russia if they demand it. He does not approve- of allowing plots against tho peace of other governments to lie latched in the United States. Texas & Pacific Itoud. New York. Aug. 2. Gov. Brown, of Texas, Vice-President of the Texas & Pacific railroad, informed a World re porter that the graders and track lay ers on t he western extension find no dif ficulty in procuring ample supplies and good water over the j(J0 miles now con structed westward from Fort Worth. The supply of water is ample, except in one or two places. The prospects for local business on this extension are far better than they were on the Union and Central Pacific lines when first con structed. Tho western extension is penetrating a country unsurpassed in that section for luxuriant and nutritive grasses. Settlements are rapidly fol lowing the construction of the line anil it is not unreasonable to express the be lief that the country immediately tribu tary to the line will be peopled much more rapidly than any part of the United States has been in the past. The charge that the line penetrates an un inhabitable region is made either in ut ter ignorance of facts or in utter disre gard of truth. linrfield Still on the Improve. OFFICIAL BULLETIN.

SPEECHES IN THE COMMONS. London August 1. In the House of Lords Duke Argyle, liberal, in a two hours speech, attacked the London Bill, to which, however, he said, the govern ment appears to be driven, as Lords are, by circumstances. He compared tho government to a jelly fish, and ad vised the government to tell the Irish that they will henceforth support the desisions of the court, and that pover ty is no excuse for wrong. Duke Marlborough, Conservative, also spoke in condemnation of the bill. Y. M. C. A. At t he conference of the Young Men's Christian Association Samuel Morley, M.

A special telegram to the Inter-Ocean says: There has heen considerable canvassing going on here as to the organization of the next House, and its probable loss to the Republicans, owing to the failure of the New York Legislature to pass a law for a special election to fill the seats vacat ed by Morton, Miller and Lapham and by the death of Wood. The New York State Canvassing Board cannot meet under the law until December, after the time for the organization of the House. Investigation, however, shows that members elected to fill these vacancies can be admitted to their scats without the election returns being canvassed by the state board, on the returns of local inspectors of New York, who can, and will, give ' a certificate of admission. Waldo Hutchins, who was elected to fill a vacancy in New York, caused by the death of the member-elect on the night of the election, was admitted on this sort of a certificate precisely to the last House, as in the case of the succes sors to Miller, Lapham, Morton and Wood. The State Canvassing Board would not legally meet in time to certi fy his election by the meeting of Con gress, and he was admitted on a certifi cate based on the return of the local inspectors. A Democratic House es tablished this precedent. John Sheppard, an infidel of Orion, Neb., built a platform alongside a Methodist camp meeting ground, and made daily speeches agaiñst the doc trines preached by the Methodist min isters. He was a great annoyance to the Christians, and they tried hard to convert him, but all in vain. One day an impulsive clergyman prayed that if Sheppard could be silenced in no other way he might be removed by death. That evening the infidel dieil very sud denly, and it would be difiicult to con vince the people thereabout that he was not killed in direct answer to prayer. Park Rvatauraiit.
